DRUG ALERT: Generic OxyContin Emerges as New Threat hydrochloride ER, which until recently was only available by the brand name OxyContin.
CONTROL STATUS Oxycodone products are in Schedule II of the federal Controlled Substances Act of 1970.

If the reasons Health Canada approved the cheaper form of the highly addictive narcotic last November were to enhance the bottom line of generic drug manufacturers who had been salivating for Purdue Pharma’s patent to expire, to give organized crime another branch of illicit business to pursue, or to cripple more of the public with addictions, then it can give itself a high-five.
